Arachnophobia is strong within me. Apparrently there are Spiders in South America big enough to eat parrots. If I was walking through the rainforest, and accidentally walked into the center of a web where a spider was able to wrap its legs around my head.. odds are I'd have a heart attack and die long before said spider managed to kill me.
OMG that isn't anything I have imagined. You better stay out of the forests.
I'm claustrophobic and if I was ever in a closed container for any length of time, I would die, I'm sure. Whenever I've had MRIs, I panic so badly they have to sedate me.
Beautiful! Worst case claustrophobia. Being buried underground in a coffin too small. Water and food pumped in through feeding tubes. Read that one a while back. Absolutely terrifying. When I was a kid we hung out in the tunnels underneath the city. There was a split off we called the "witches tunnel". Nobody knew where it went. I decided to see. Probably about 50 feet underground I started crawling through the tunnel. It was no big deal. I didn't realize the tunnel was shrinking. Got to a point about 10 feet away from a wide opening. I went for it. I got stuck. Couldn't move forwards. Couldn't go back. I was really stuck. Fortunately my friend Scott knew I was going to try. So three hours later he ended up crawling through and pulling me back far enough to where I could crawl out backwards. Been claustrophobic ever sense. :)
OMG, just the thought of that makes me cringe.
One time I was playing hide and seek in the house with my two sons. I hid in the guest closet. They knew I was in there, so they held the door so I couldn't get out. I panicked, and they knew they were in big trouble.
That was my biggest for years, suddenly (probably after having to defend my kids from them) I can now face the biggest ones with only a sheet of printer paper and an empty jar.
Now my only phobia is that a certain "Amiriter" will hijack one of my posts for another of his tantrums about 'what a wonderful' person he is and how 'everyone else' is a worthless 'sock'.
Lol!! Would need refrigerator boxes and trash cans for the spiders that I really worry about. :)
Though for some reason that made me think about a recent prison break where they had tied a few hundred socks together and scaled down the building. I'll see if I can find it. :)
I wonder who that could be? (end of sarcasm)
Yup clowns are rough with me as well. The most extreme is hearing something that wakes you up. ''Tis under the bed" might be a mouse. Turn on the flashlight to take a look. Not just one clown. A dozen.
Yup my dad read Stephen Kings "IT" to me when I was twelve. Far better than going to a horror movie. Soon after saw "Killer Clows from Outer Space". Lots of people found it "funny" that movie scared the hell out of me. :)
Yup. Same year I saw "From Beyond", "Poltergeist 2", "Aliens", and "The House" all in theater. Was a crazy year. :)
No! Though I have to now. :)
Awesome! Thank you! Have a couple days of vacation left. Keep em coming. :)
I can't believe he put you on the spot like that....
Oh scream like a little girl, freeze up, & then pass out.
I had to do that not too long ago. I was in hospital and they had needles everywhere. Freaked me out something horrid.
Sorry you are totally confusing me.
That's not surprising. Perhaps a language barrier ?
Of course you would say that.
Ican't think what phobia I might have have. But life has taught me not to be silly, get through get it done move on.
I have the usual phobias...heights for example but if I had to I would just psych myself up.
I don't fear heights when in a plane. No big deal. Went to the Grand Canyon a few years back. My two friends had no problem with walking to the edge and looking down. Not me. Hell no! Not within 10 feet. :)
I lived on the 20th floor once. Never again!
I would get through it some way. I have never backed down from anything. (yet)
